A PyTorch dataset of the eyes found in the OmniArt dataset

Project description

OmniArt Eye Dataset

This package provides a dataset of 118,576 painted eyes. These eyes are extracted from about 245,000 paintings from the OmniArt dataset. The dataset provides the eyes as images, the colour of the iris, and metadata from the OmniArt dataset.


The dataset can be used like any other PyTorch dataset. It extends the ImageFolder class to provide the images and labels/colour and in addition attaches the OmniArt metadata as a dictionary. The following classes are used, and how many of that class exist in the dataset:

Colour Count
Amber 3,114
Blue 18,926
Brown 42,094
Gray 7,637
Grayscale 16,234
Green 5,220
Hazel 1,578
Irisless 18,282
Negative 96,042
Red 5,491

The negative class exists to be able to classify non-eye images. It contains samples of primarily noise and facial areas, such as closed eyelids.


The dataset can be used in the following way

import torch
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np
import torchvision.utils as vutils
from torchvision.transforms import transforms

from omniart_eye_dataset import OmniArtEyeDataset

dataset = OmniArtEyeDataset(transform=transforms.Compose([

dataloader =, batch_size=64, shuffle=True, num_workers=4)

# Take 64 random entries
images, color, metadata = next(iter(dataloader))

# Plot the entries
plt.figure(figsize=(10, 10))
plt.title("OmniArt eyes")
plt.imshow(np.transpose(vutils.make_grid(images, padding=5, normalize=True), (1, 2, 0)))

Sample eyes


This dataset has already been used to train a classifier and painted eye generator.
